Do you know the difference between a dope bboy and an amateur one?
There are probably a hundred factors you can list down that distinguishes Issei and a regular bboy jamming down his street.
But today we are going to talk about one — something most beginners (or even people who have been breaking for a while) can use to instantly improve their breaking.
And once again, it is something that most people neglect.
If you take action, and start improving this particular segment of your breaking, you’ll be able to see the difference in your breaking almost INSTANTLY.
So, by now you are already pretty curious.
What’s this key factor?
In particular, sharpness of execution.
What do I mean?
Let me try to illustrate this idea to you using an example:
Have you noticed the difference between someone who lands a freeze SHARPLY on beat, like they literally FROZE in time?
And a bboy who merely places himself into the freeze, using much strength?
Can you see the difference in your head?
The dope bboy transits into a freeze and ensures that the freeze he hits is sharp, strong, tight and locked. Not transiting for the sake of transiting.
He enters in, locks it and BOOM! On beat and sharp.
Makes him look super dope.
Whilst many bboys out there are teaching freezes, freeze stacks and footwork transitions… They often ignore the little tricks that can explode your breaking execution tremendously.
They might not even know of such little details.
Now that you know what I’m talking about,
I’ll show you how to snap into a freeze. A strong, solid snap that makes your set look dope.
So, I’ve come up with a video to help you apply this nifty little trick into your breaking.
One that can help you lock down your freezes, and make them look tight.
And worthy of props.
So check out the video here:
A little caveat: I’m not saying that the other type of transition is bad. There are times where you have to use the other type of transitions. They are for entirely different purposes. BUT the problem lies where nobody knows how to enter a baby freeze sharply. Simply because nobody is teaching it.
Here’s a question for you: Did you find this tip surprising, useful, or both?
